Who We Are
We are a 100% volunteer run, non-profit organization seeking to foster the development of the arts by forging productive relationships with local youth, regional artists and the broader community of Mt. Airy.
We aim to support those who approach painting, sculpture, music, design, theater, dance, literature, etc. as they develop their skill and imagination, and to provide them opportunities to share this passion with the larger community. After all, as George Washington so eloquently stated "The Arts and Sciences, essential to the prosperity of the State and to the ornament of human life, have a primary claim to the encouragement of every lover of his country and mankind."
What We Do
We strive to increase the visibility for the arts in Mt. Airy and the surrounding areas by facilitating events, supporting local artists and connecting people to artistic resources. We create ways for the community to help further the arts by providing artist meet-ups, culture club, open mic nights and the annual Mt. Airy ArtsFest!
Mt. Airy ArtsFest
This annual festival is a free, family-friendly event intended to make the arts accessible!

"To draw you must close your eyes and sing." -- Pablo Picasso
Our vision is to bring the community of Mount Airy together through the power of art.
“Art doesn’t give rise to anything in us that isn’t already there. It simply stirs our curious consciousness and sparks a fire that illuminates who we have always wanted to be.”
-- Kamand Kojouri
